5. Grasp cut end of old line at opposite side of canopy skirt and pull old line. Work new line through V-
tabs, channels and across apex, and down the opposite side, until end of new line extends
approximately 10-inches beyond connector snaps. Cut old line from new line at whipstitching to
include waxed end.
6. Make certain that approximately 10-inches of new line still extend beyond connector snap, and mark
new line at point even with inside edge of snap. Cut away remaining ends of old line and tie where
the old line was removed. Tie the new line at the same location where the old line was removed.
Hold adjacent line and new line tightly together at snap, and trace both lines from snap to canopy skirt
under equal tension. Mark new line where lines reach lower edge of lateral band. Check correctness
of marking by again applying equal tension to both lines.
